Before putting the motion on the approval of 
the bond of Mayor-elect Roche, Mayor Harrison 
delivered the following message: 

mayok's message. 
To the City Council of the City of Chicago: 

Gentlemen: As I am about to terminate my 
official relations with the City of Chicago, I deem 
it proper that I give an account of my steward- 
ship, so that the people may be able to determine 
whether or not their affairs have been prudently 
managed. Few men observe growth with suffi- 
cient care to enable them to measure its degree 
during its progress. Some plants shoot forward 
many inches in twenty-four hours, and yet the 
closest observer can not see the upward move- 
ment. The growth can be noted only by measur- 
ing to-day and again to-morrow. The boy often 
increases to a man's height in a twelve-month. 
He realizes it only when in the spring he finds his 
last year's trousers barely covering his knees, 

I can enable the public to properly appreciate 
the progress of this city during the past eight 
years in but one way. That is to show it as it 
was, and then to show it as it is. I take not to my- 
self the credit for this city's almost phenomenal 
advancement during my adminstration of its 
affairs. The Mayor has simply so controlled 
affairs that Chicago, through her geographical 
position and the energy of her people, has been 
enabled to make giant strides towards her mag- 
nificent future, A good physician can not Gure 
a patient of disease; he only holds the disease in 
check, while nature effects the cure. That in 
most instances is the best government, which 
does not attempt to realize Utopian hopes or to 
solve dreamy theories, but which so holds and 
wields power that nature and the people's ener- 
gies can, untrammeled, work out their destinies. 
I have endeavored to thus make this city's 
government during my eight years' occupancy 
of the Mayor's office. 

"When I was inaugurated, on the 29th of April, 
1879, I found the adminstration heir to the 
grievous legacy of scrip, amounting to nearly 
two and a quarter millions of dollars, handed 
down from the year 1878. The city's employees 
had not been paid for many weeks, and when 
paid in the past had been forced to sell their 
scrip at a large discount. Contractors were 
charging enormous prices because of the un- 
certainty as to the time they were to be paid, and 
of the depreciation of the stuff they were forced 
o take, when paid, in lieu of money. The city

was losing each year over a quarter of a million 
from this cause alone. 

In addition to this, there was held by eastern 
banks $249,000 of the city's six per cent, certi- 
ficates of indebtedness, issued in 1875. which had 
been declared by the Supreme Court illegal. 
The prospect before me was anything but bright. 
In my first message I said to the City Council: 
"Debts can be wiped out but in one way— by pay- 
ment. Surplus can be acquired only by saving. 
Saving can only be made by honest expenditure 
for wise and legitimate purposes, and by prevent- 
ing all leakages. The bonded debt of Chicago is 
about $13,000,000 (bearing six and seven per 
cent). If you will aid me, gentlemen, in an 
economical adminstration of affairs, I believe it 
will be possible to fund a part of this debt, so as 
to save one or two per cent, per annum. The 
people will cheerfully submit to many temporary 
inconveniences for 6o permanent a relief." 

How well that promise has been kept you all 
know, and the tax-payer ought not to have for- 
gotten. 

By cutting down salaries; by a rigid enforce- 
ment of economy in every department; by close 
collections wherever a dollar could be collected; 
by getting rid of all employees not absolutely 
necessary, and exacting full work from those re- 
tained; by saving from every appropriation when 
possible; by, in fine, managing the affairs of this 
city as if it were a private corporation, the em- 
ployees of this city were paid long before the 
first year had expired, in gold; were paid 
promptly on the first of each month, a thing, by 
the way» which has never before been done in 
the memory of the oldest employee; contractors 
were paid promptly; scrip was reduced during 
the first year to about 81,500,000; during the sec- 
ond, to less than .§1300,000, and entirely eliminated 
in the third year. The illegal certificates 
amounting in principal and interest to over 
$275,000 were paid. The honor of our city was 
redeemed; her credit began to improve in the 
money eenters of the eountry; her bonds were 
refunded first at four and a half per cent., then 
at four per cent, and finally to her infinite pride 
at 3 65-100 per cent. There was last January due 
the General Fund from the various appropria- 
tions nearly two and a quarter millions of dol- 
lars. So that my successors, if they be prudent, 
will never again have to dishonor the city by 
the issuance of scrip, 

The following statement from the Comptroller 
will show at a glance the condition of the city's 
finances in 1879 compared with that of to-day: 

Amount of certificates of 
indebtedness "with in- 
terest thereon," issued 
on account of the ap- 
propriation of 1875, and 
prior years, paid off $ 275,613.00 



Amount of scrip issued on 
account of the appropri- 
ation of 1878, and elimi- 
nated in 1879 and 1880... 2,176,079.01 

Total amount paid $2,451,722.01 

Bonded debt of 1S79 $13,043,000.00 

Bonded debt of 1877.. 12,588,509,00 

Bonded debt paid off 454,500.00 

Am't returned to sinking 
fund 248.728.57 

Total amount paid $3,154,950.58 

Cash in treasury in 1879...$ 709,195.75 
Cash in treasury in 1887... 2,264,532.17 
Amount saved from ap- 
propriations 1,237,000.00 

Amount caved on interest 
on the bonded debt 58,096.90 

Our salaried men are well and promptly paid 
on the first day of each month. Those they trade 
with know exactly how to calculate, for they can 
rely upon the payment of monthly bills to a day. 
This stimulates and encourages trade, for the 
regular circulation of several hundred thousand 
dollars, on a given day, permeates the entire 
business machinery of the city. Contra ctors 
never have to wait for their money after their 
bills are audited. It is known far and near that 
contracts are awarded to the lowest responsible 
bidder, regardless of favor, and that "the city 
never permits a combination to be made gainst 
it. The result is it gets every kind of work and 
material at the lowest prices. 

In May, 1879, there were in the city 132.80 miles 
of paved streets, the most of them in a wretched 
condition. There were not ten miles of paved 
street in the whole city over which a light ve- 
hicle could move rapidly without injury to 
wheel or axle. Since then we have built 214.21 
miles or 81 miles more in eight years than in the 
entire previous history of the city. The follow- 
ing table will show at a glance this striking 
comparison.

la 1879 there were in place in the city 294% 
miles of sewers ranging from 1 to 6V2 feet in di- 
ameter, and 8931 catch basins, all built at an ex- 
pense of $4,988,342, or an avergae of $16,925 per 
mile. Since then there have been laid 161% 
miles of sewers, 5V4 miles of which ranged from 
6% to 9 feet, and 5547 catch basins, at a cost of 
$1,771,085, or $10,945 per mile. 

In May, 1879, there was a legend, "A fine of 
$5.00 will be imposed for driving over this bridge 
faster than a walk." on every bridge in the city. 
It was the part of wisdom to obey the injunction 
for the bridges were in such dilapidated condi- 
tion that it was unsafe to diregard the warning. 
For years simple surface repairs had been made, 
the stringers were hardly sound enough to hold 
the nails which held the planking down. The 
protections were decayed, and in many instances 
the superstructure had no protection whatever. 
Our bridges, with one or two exceptions, are 
now in thoroughly good condition. Two of the 
largest swing bridges in the world, rapidly 
moved by steam, are in operation across our 
river, another is nearly ready for use, a fourth 
has been commenced, and the Mayor has forced 
a great street railway company to contract for 
the building of two more. The $5 fine warning 
has been removed, and policemen order largest 
teams to be driven over in a trot, thus saving 
time, which is money made. The same warning 
was stuck up over the several viaducts in the 
city. Now all viaducts have been strengthened, 



and new viaducts, aggregating about a mile in 
length, have been erected of s® solid a character 
that a teamster can scarcely tell from any vibra- 
tion when his vehicle has reached the structure. 

In the Department of Public Works there has 
been expended in the past eight years over $36,- 
000,000, and yet no whisper of corruption, watte 
or extravagance has ever been heard.

In 1879 the streets of the city were crowded 
with huge poles carrying cumbersome crossarms 
which bore tons of iron wire that crossed and re- 
crossed streets, forming a vast unsightly net- 
work— a menace to life and limb of the passer- 
by, a positive hindrance to the lire department, 
and a general nuisance. The question of under- 
ground telegraph was agitated for a number of 
years, and the City Electrician made experi- 
ments which were convincing beyond a doubt 
that such a system would give satisfactory ser- 
vice. In 1881 the City Council passed an ordin- 
ance prohibiting the various telegraph and tele- 
phone companies doing business in this city 
setting poles and stringing serial lines, but al- 
lowing them them to do such repairing as was 
necessary to keep in working order such lines 
then in service until May, 1883, at which date all 
aerial lines should be substituted by underground 
circuits. At the date last named the companies 
displaying a reluctance to comply with said 
ordinance, the agents of the city cut their lines, 
and the companies resorted to legal process to 
restrain the city from interfering with their 
lines. In this they were defeated, and accepted 
the inevitable by commencing to place their 
lines underground and removing poles from the 
streets as rapidly as possible since that date, the 
city keeping up in the procession. The under- 
ground system owned and operated by the city 
comprises 7,931 feet conduit; 9,752 feet iron pipe; 
1,200 feet wooden trough; 47,789 feet cable; 65 
miles single wires; 35 man-holes. In addition to 
the city wires there is operated and controlled 
by the various companies 52 miles of conduit, In 
which are placed 2,950 miles of wire. The city 
has removed from the street 140 miles of wire 
and 217 poles; the various telegraph companies 



have removed 885 miles of wire and 717 poles 
from the streets. 

The most striking public Work carried endur- 
ing the present adminstration is the City Hall, 
the foundation of which was laid by my pre- 
decessor and fiuished by me in 1886. This huge 
pile was completed without public scandal or 
suspicion of fraud. Not only was the work 
honestly performed under Mr. i\irkland, the 
Commissioner of Buildings, but economically as 
well. Erected substantially on the same general 
plans as the County building, with far more 
elegant interior finish, it cost $1,676,030, while 
the reeords of the County Clerk show that the 
other cost $2,604,668. The City Hall has not yet 
shown a material crack, while hundreds of 
thousands of dollars are being spent to prevent 
the other from going to pieces. 

There were in 1879, 715 79-100 miles of sidewalk: 
165 82-100 miles have been laid since, a very 
large portion of the latter being of massive stone. 

The total number of street gas-lamps previous 
to 1879, was 10,785; there have been since erected 
5,203, and 4,048 oil-lamps, making a total of 
street lamps now lighted 20,036. 

The collection from water rates for the year 
ending May, 1879, was $922,001; and although we 
lowered all frontage rates 25 per cent, we soon 
reached the old amount of collection, and with a 
further reduction of 12 per cent, for prompt 
advance payment we reach for the current year 
ending the last day of this month, $1,371,811. 
The increased collection during the past eight 
years has been steady and regular, and is owiBg 
in a very great measure to the improved methods 
of collection, and to a conscientious disregard 
of all favoritism.

[1887. 



The police force of Chicago in 1879 numbered 
453 men, including officers. For years it had 
been made more or less a political machine, and 
although the bulk of its men and most of its 
officers were efficient and honest, yet the force 
was honeycombed with corruption and of low 
morale. Men received monthly salaries whose 
real duty was to levy blackmail. The detectives 
had their own thieves, who acted as 6potters, but 
plied their own calling with impunity, being told 
to avoid Chicago as their field of operations as 
far as possible. This was the headquarters of 
one of the boldest and most skillful bank robber 
bands in America. They craoked banks and 
jewelry establishments throughout the land; no 
extradition papers could take them away from 
this city, which was known far and near to be, 
in the slang phase of the gang, "right;" they had 
their friends, whom they wined and dined, and 
whom they permitted to win heavy bets, ready to 
run to Police headquarters to get them out on 
bail, and their pals, who hesitated at no perjury 
to prove an alibi, and to get them released on 
habeas corpus. In less than two years after I 
came in this was all changed: robbers ceased to 
be heroes of Chicago while they were marauding 
over the country; the Jimmy Carrol gang had 
been improving its morals in different peniten- 
tiaries, and the robber, confidence man and 
bunko steerer learned in '79 and '80 that this 
climate was not a healthy one for their kind. 
The force, under its successive chiefs, O'Donnell, 
McGarigle, Doyle and Ebersold, has attained an 
efficiency acknowledged throughout the world. 
In my first address to the force, in 1879, I said 1 
hoped to see the day when to be a veteran in the 
Chicago force would be as honorable as it is to 
be a veteran soldier. Our force now numbers 
1,036 all told, and when marching through the 
streets, is one of the finest looking body of men 
in the world and shows a drill which would be 
creditable to a trained military regiment. Their 
duties are trying upon their temper; their 
bravery, except at rare intervals, is in the silent 
watches of the night, when the stars, themselves 
and the watchful desperado alone can be wit- 
nesses. When they have had the opportunity to 
show themselves before their fellow men, they 
have proved themselves heroes. It is a pity that 
their fellow citizens are so ready to be captious 
critics, and that the Press is so prone to belittle 
them. They are oftentimes charged with ruffian- 
ism and brutality; if their critics were placed in 
their shoes, many who now appear to be patient 
gentlemen would prove as wanting in the Chris- 
tian virtue, patience, as is the roughest patrol- 
man. 

Immediately on my entry into office I de- 
termined to look within the force for men to fill 
its highest position. This resolution sprang 
from the belief that a less capable man pro- 
moted within the Department would get more 
effective work, and improve the morale of the 
men far more than a much more capable man 
taken from the outside. Promoting should not 
necessarily be made according to seniority in 
service; but even that should be attempted when 
possible. Any Mayor of Chicago who. for party 
purposes, would put an outsider over our Police 
or Fire Department, ought to be reprobated by 
all good citizens. I have promoted regardless of 
politics, and have advanced more Republicans 
than Democrats. The most remarkable advance 
step taken by our Police Department was in the 
introduction of the Police Patrol wagon and its 
accompanying service. 

So valuable is this arm of the service that I 
cannot new be silent and allow any one to claim 
credit for its introduction to whom credit is not 
due. I speak plainly because several newspaper 
articles have been entirely astray on the subject. 
The first hint or suggestion of the thing was my 
own. The details and carrying them into opera- 
tion was the joint work of Austin J. Doyle, 
then Secretary of the Police Department. John 



Barrett, Electrician of the Fire Department, and 
myself. I suggested the thing to Mr. Doyle and 
told him to consult Barrett. On our first con- 
sultation the main features were determined 
upon. I so clearly foresaw the vast value of the 
thing, that I remarked to them that if I could 
attach my name to it 1 believe my memory would 
live for centuries. No hint ever came to me 
from any one else, nor do I know of any one who 
had dreamed of it. 

Few people fully comprehend the value of this 
arm of the force. It increases the certainty for 
punishment of crime, and must therefore ex- 
ercise the most powerful influence for its pre- 
vention. It gives to every citizen, however re- 
mote from headquarters, the means of instantly 
summoning police assistance. It enables the 
authorities to humanely care for the unfortunate 
victims of accident or sudden illness; it affords 
the opportunity to convey to the station, in a 
properly arranged wagon, the uproarious drunk- 
ard or street brawler, without the lamentable 
exposures so common under the old style of 
arrests. The city is the custodian of the morals 
of its citizens, and owes to all ages and both 
sexes proper immunity from indecent expos ires, 
blasphemy and impure language, which are too 
often the accompaniment of such arrests. It is 
an excellant auxiliary to a fire alarm system, and 
possesses the additional advantages of enabling 
the possessor of a private box to call the fire de- 
partment directly to his door without leaving 
the premises as may also be done by a patrolman 
from a street box. It enables the force, what- 
ever it may be, to work with the greatest effici- 
ency, and to accomplish infinitely more m the 
preservation of peace and order than could be 
possible without this valuable aid, by makiner a 
comparatively small force extremely efficient, 
and therefore a large force unnecessary. It saves 
a large annual expenditure for 1 he maintenance 
of the department; its introduction is therefore 
in the line of real economy. By promptly fur- 
nishing the means of dispersing crowds, check- 
ing disturbances or riots, arresting disorderly 
persons, it infinitely decreases the chance of 
serious outbreaks, which often end in murder, 
robbery or arson. I enables the patrolman to 
remain on his post; if he arrests a party or 
wishes assistance, he has only to go to the nearest 
box and mak6 his wants known at the station, 
and in a short time he is relieved of his prisoner 
and assistance is at hand. Provious to the in- 
troduction of this system an officer making an 
arrest was obliged to go to the station and leave 
his post entirely unprotected from one to three 
hours, a fact often improved by thieves, who 
have one of their number arrested for a trivial 
matter simply to get the officer off his post. It 
makes every key-holder to a considerable extent 
a policeman, for he carries with him the power 
to summon the police to any point wherever he 
may see that their services are required. It in- 
creases the officer's power, dignity and import- 
ance, for he need never feel that he is alone, or 
beyond the reach of support; and to a very great 
degree it will lessen the chances and necessity of 
personal encounters with roughs, who frequent- 
ly combine for his injury or to divert him from 
his duty. An instance of the efficiency of this 
system was demonstrated a few years ago, when 
a desperado named BUI Allen shot and killed an 
officer while attempting to arrest him. Allen 
escaped and a few days after he was located on 
the West Side of the city; an order was issued to 
surround the place of hiding and the culprit was 
captured in less than half an hour after the or- 
der was issued by an officer who was several 
milee distant at the time. Its utility has also 
been demonstrated in our late labor troubles: in 
several instances the entire force was concen- 
trated at a particular point in a very shi>rt space 
of time. There are now in service 496 street 
stations, and 348 private stations, making a total 
of 814 stations; also 18 patrol wagons.

[1887. 



Our Fire Department was good when 1 first 
took charge of the city's affairs, but it has stead- 
ily grown in efficiency under the able manage- 
ment of Marshal Swenie and his capable officers. 
I regard Mr, Swenie as more fitly filling his 
place than any other I have ever known in any 
position. He is not only an expert fireman and 
superior disciplinarian, but also a fine business 
man, managing his department with financial 
success. The morale and discipline of the de- 
partment has vastly improved within the past 
eight years. In consenting to appointments, I 
have cautioned the Chief to look to efficiency, 
and have promoted solely for merit. It has been 
slanderously charged that I made the Fire and 
Police Departments political machines. I could 
not state the politics of a half dozen members 
of the whole Fire Department; and yet, nearly 
every officer owes to me his promotion. I never 
asked how a man voted even in my own three 
elections. Probably two-thirds of the policemen 
now on the force have been appointed by me and 
every officer except four lieutenants owes his 
position to my promotion, and yet more than 
half of the officers were Republicans. Po- 
litical friends have come frequently to me to 
complain of policemen who worked and voted 
against me. I invariably refused to hear the 
names. If I could not win the support of a man 
under me, I certainly would not force it. At no 
single one of my elections have I ever given any 
orders how the departments should work politi- 
cally or vote. 

On Sunday, the 3d of this month, a great Chi- 
cago newspaper, which had frequently falsely 
charged that I made the Police and Fire Depart- 
ments political machines, openly boasted, and 
approvingly, that the policemen had received 
orders from their officers not only to vote 
against the candidate of the labor party, but to 
work against him. Had I been a candidate, and 
such an order had been given against Mr. Roche 
this same journal would have howled with rage. 
It is perfectly natural that the policemen should 
oppose the man who is said, whether truthfully 
or not, to sympathize with that terrible faction, 
one of whom threw the bomb, which murdered 
so many brave officers at the haymarket; but the 
officers in command should have left it to the 
manhood of the men, and not try to force them. 
The principle is the same, it matters not whs 
the candidates be. 

If one set of police captains c m coerce their 
men in one eleotion, what is to prevent them do- 
ing the same at another? Coercion against a 
socialistic candidate may lead a bigoted Protest- 
ant to use coercion against a Catholic, a Demo- 
crat against a Republican, or vice versa. There 
are thousands of men in Chicago so partisan as 
to believe every one not of his party to be dis- 
honest. A policeman is not a hired mercenary; 
he is of the people as much as any other citizen, 
and should retain his manhood in politics and 
religion, I have not inquired into the truth or 
falsity of the Tribune's assertion; I hope, for the 
reputation of the force which I have tried to 
make a body of men and not of slaves, that the 
newspaper report was a slander.* The news- 
paper which applauds such an act to defeat a 
labor man will assist or secretely approve the 
same act two years hence to defeat a Democrat. 
Whenever the Fire or Police Department be- 
comes a political machine it will soon learn to 
wink at crime for pay and to blackmail for gain, 

A police forGe which becomes a political ma- 
chine will be the people's enemy and not the cit- 
izens' protector. This is a free country; the 
poor man's ballot is nearly all. in this age of 
plutocracy, which enables him to read the De- 
claration of Independence and not fear to be a 
flaunting hypocrisy. The servants of the people 
should not attempt to take from the people that 

"Note— Since writing the above, the Chief has in- 
formed me that this statement was untrue. — 0. H. H. 



grand legacy— the ballot— handed down to us by 
the fathers of the Republic. 

In spite of all the vile calumny heaped upon 
me at my elections, I never forced a man, but 
kept men in position who openly opposed me at 
the polls. 

One of the most important of all matters in- 
augurated since I became Mayor was the estab- 
lishment of the Drainage and Water Supply Com- 
mission. I believe the report which will shortly 
be made will prove of great value to the city, 
and if the General Assembly of the State will 
grant the power to carry out the recommend- 
ations of the Commission, and our people shall 
be wise enough to take advantage of the oppor- 
tunity, then will we be able to predict that here 
will be the grandest city of the world. No other 
place on earth offers the same inducements for 
continual and for all-time continuous growth as 
Chicago. London draws her every-day staple 
food from distant lands; England could not feed 
her. But here is the possibility of an absolutely 
boundless food supply, and at our very doors. 
With the vast inland seas, along whose shores are 
exhaustless forests, and mines of every metal, 
washing our eastern limits, the lake sending 
through our midst a river which will bear our 
commerce to the States washed by old Mississip- 
pi's 1,200 miles of navigable waters, and bring 
back to us the produce of the exhaustless Missis- 
sippi Valley; with perfect drainage, insuring 
health, a fountain of crystal purity, covering 
thousands of square miles and nine hundred 
feet deep, flowing into our very kitchens; with a 
constantly moving atmosphere bringing to our 
lungs ever fresh ozone; with cool nights to rest 
the laborer and fill man with fresh vigor for the 
morrow's toil, each man endowed with mens 
sanaincorporesa.no; with all these conditions 
Chicago may sing: 

"Who shall say what I may be, 
Who can tell my fortune to me?" 

Nothing but man's folly, nothing but revolution 
and intestine dissensions which may imbrew 
brothers' hands in brothers' blood can check 
Chicago's growth. It is my earnest hope, gen- 
tlemen, that you will do all that may be in your 
power, as the municipal legislature, to bear to a 
successful issue what has been so auspiciously 
begun. 

The report of Mr. Felton, Suoerintendent of 
the House of Correction, for 1885 is quite inter- 
esting, and fully demonstrates his able manage- 
ment of that institution. The audited accounts 
during the year were: for general expenses, 
S85.721.98; for construction expenses, $36,513.89; 
total, $102,235.87. The receipts were on account 
general expenses. $62,618.49; from Comptroller 
for construction expenses, 36,513.89; total, $99,- 
130.38; showing an excess of only $3,105.49 of 
expenditures for the administration of the 
prison over receipts during the year. Last year 
the Council appropriated $100,000 for an enlarge- 
ment of the prison. 

Work upon the structure was commenced 
early in the summer and progressed favorably 
until winter. Nearly all the work has been done 
by prisoners to this date. A large part of the 
work of completion, however, must be done by 
skilled workmen. 

The number of prisoners in the institution 
January 1, 1886, was 696; there were received, 
during the year, 7,524— making a total of 8,220 
prisoners. There were discharged during the 
year 7,515,— leaving in prison at the termination 
of the year. 615 males and 90 females, or a total 
of 705 prisoners. Of thoso discharged 1,099 were 
by payment of balances due upon unserved ex- 
ecutions; 847 by Mayor's order; 1 by Governor's 
pardon; 76 by order of town and village boards; 
7 by order of courts: 67 by supersedeas; 6 by es- 
cape; 8 by death, and 5,404 by expiration of sen- 
tence. As in former years, many of the releases 
by Mayor's order were made upon the recom-

mendation of the Superintendent of the House 
of Correction and the City Physician; and ot hers 
often upon the recommendation of the officer 
who made the arrest, or the Justice who had 
committed the prisoner; and frequently upon 
the recommendation of parents in behalf of 
their children; or of the wives or husbands of 
those who were released. Of the eommittments 
7,437 were for non-payment of fines, and 87 upon 
• sentences varying from thirty days to eighteen 
month? in extent. Of the offenses, 7,000 were 
committed for the violation of municipal law, 
to-wit: Breach of the peace, 5,911; vagrancy, 746; 
keeping, or inmate of, disorderly or gambling 
houses, 70; and other miscellaneous ordinances, 
273; 430 were committed for violating town and 
village ordinances; 91 were for offenses against 
the laws of the State, and 3 for violation of the 
United States laws. Payment of fines imposed 
for violation of municipal, town and village 
ordinances is made by imprisonment at the rate 
of fifty cents per day; for violation of State 
laws, at the rate of one dollar and fifty cents per 
day. when imprisonment is ordered. 

The productive industries which were pursued 
the past year were brick-making, cane-weaving, 
cane-seating, stocking-toeing, and work at con- 
structing new buildings. The net results of 
brick-making were quite satisfactory; but the 
average earnings at cane-weaving were but 28 
emts per day for each prisoner employed; but 
25 and % cents per day for those employed at 
cane-seating. But the worst feature is that this 
work is being done as piece work — and frequently 
oar men are idle for want of material with which 
to work— at a consequent loss to the city while 
they are idle; and what is worse still, with a loss 
of health to the prisoners, and demoralization; 
and this too, wh?n the bulk of the prisoners are 
not criminals, but simply violators of ordinance. 

Our business interests as a great trade center, 
the peace and comfort of our citizens, and the 
reputation of our eity as a salubrious and invit- 
ing place of residence to those seeking new 
homes, are all intimately connected with tho suc- 
cessful management of a Department of Health, 
and the results accomplished by this department 
during the past six years in this city have been 
very marked. The death rate of Chicago in 1881 
was 25 per 1,000 of population per annum. It 
has been steadily reduced year by year to 19 per 
1,000 in 1885. a reduction of 6 per 1,000 per an- 
num—a 6aving of 4,218 live3 during the year 1886 
if the death rate of 18S1 had been maintained. 
During the same period the death rate of London 
was reduced 2 per 1,000; Boston, 1 per 1,000; 
Brooklyn, 4 per 1,000; New York, 5 per 1.000; 
Philadelphia, 2 per 1,000. These results have 
challenged the attention of sanitary authorities 
everywhere, and outside of Chicago the fullest 
recognition and commendation have been ex- 
tended to the department. Some of the agencies 
which have contributed to this great advance in 
the sanitary status of Chicago belong peculiarly 
to this administration. The ordinance provid- 
ing for the inspection of tenement houses and 
places of labor was passed October, 1879. In 
September, 1880, it was amended, and with my 
approval and co-operation, the scope of service 
contemplated by this ordinance has been stead- 
ily extended by the department, until I believe 
the Council, as well as our citizens generally, 
would be surprised at the nature and results of 
this work Two hundred and fifty-two thousand 
five hundred and seventy-five examinations of 
factories, shops, stores and domiciles, have been 
made by competent officers since the law became 
operative, and a vast number of improvements 
in ventilation, lighting, plumbing, protection of 
dangerous machinery, etc., and a still vaster 
number of nuisances connected with the houses 
of the laboring classes have been removed. This 
service also includes in its supervision the in- 
spection of houses being constructed, of which 
the plans of 10,513 are now on file in the depart- 



ment, while the reports of the examinations of 
tenement houses and places of labor are all 
alphabetically arranged, classified, and accessible 
at any moment. The execution of this law has 
been conducted with much judgment by the 
Commissioner of Health and the various trade 
and professional bodies, as plumbers and archi- 
tects, having to do with house construction and 
arrangement, are not, as formerly, resisting the 
supervision of the Health Department, but are 
actively aiding and co-operating in the work. 

That terrible scourge, small-pox, has become 
so infrequent in this city that the Council have 
considered the propriety of omitting appropria- 
tions for the support of the hospital during the 
coming year, but we ought not to forget, and 
other communities should profit by the fact, that 
we are indebted for this immunity to the vigil- 
ance of our officers of health, who have vaccin- 
ated 263,376 of oar citizens since and including 
the year 1880, and to this other fact that every 
case of small-pox when discovered is by the same 
vigilance promptly removed to the hospital or 
effectively quarantined at home. More than one 
thousand samples covering every variety of our 
food supplies, including sugars, spices, milk, 
condiments, candies, etc., have been examined 
by a competent chemist under the direction of 
the Commissioner of Health, and bas«d largely 
upon these examinations the Citizens' Associa- 
tion made its report of 1884 on the condition of 
our food supplies, and formulated a law against 
adulerations which was offered to Congress for 
its adoption. The great packing interests of the 
Town of Lake, which the Supreme Court of the 
State, in 1879. placed under the sanitary super- 
vision of the Commissioner of Health of this 
city, have been so carefully and intelligently 
guarded and assisted in improving their methods 
of rendering offal and drying the refuse from 
their establishments, that offenses therefrom 
have been reduced to a minimum, and the me- 
thods in use there have been adopted in all sim- 
ilar work in the larger cities of population in 
this country and Europe. Since, and including 
the year 1879, 2,671,529 pounds of meat, poultry 
and gamo have been found in our markets, or 
preparing for our markets, and regarded as unfit 
for food by the meat inspectors, all of which 
has been consigned to the rendering taoks. 
Measured by its results— the reduction of the 
death rate in this eity, and a corresponding re- 
duction of the sickness rate— the Department 
of Health exhibits a work so definite, so com- 
prehensive and so thorough as to embody the 
spirit and fulfil the best intention of sanitary 
effort. 

The progress made by the city in affording 
accommodations to enable it to educate its. chil- 
dren, has been enormous during the past eight 
years. In the spring of 1879, it owned 51 school 
houses and rented 19, affording 47,106 seats. Since 
that time there have been erected, including 
some not yet finished, 58 magnificient houses, 
with all modern appliances, at a cost of $2,756, 
819.37, and sites having a frontage of 8,700 feet 
have been purchased at a cost of $463,423.20. 
When the new buildings shall be furnished, the 
seating capacity will be more than twice what it 
was eight years ago, and other accommodations 
increased to a far greater extent. Several of the 
old houses have been added to and remodeled. 
Many of the new buildings are models in school 
architecture, and are a source of great pride to 
the people who are so fortunate as to be able to 
send their children to them. In 1879, there were 
in the publiG schools 851 teachers. In February 
of this year there were 1,500. If education makes 
better citizens we may congratulate the rapidly 
coming generation with an improved citizenship; 
for there are few children now in Chicago who 
can not acquire, at the expense ot the state, a 
good business education. In addition to the 
facilities afforded for the education of the chil- 
dren, great advances have been made to enable

[1887 



the adult to continue his education without ex- 
pense, through the advantages furnished by the 
Public Library. In the seven and a half years 
ending last June, the library had increased its 
volumes from 58,000 to nearly 120,000, and at this 
date several thousand more volumes have been 
added. 

On tht 24th of last May the library was removed 
from its old quarters, corner of Lake and Dear- 
born streets, to the fire-proof rooms on the fourth 
floor of the City Hall. The library is now safe 
from fire and is conveniently located. The floor 
epace occupied by the library is 15,383 square 
feet. A platform or gallery measuring 4,536 
square feet has been put in the large hall for use 
of the readers of current periodicals, making a 
total of 20,919 square feet. The rooms are lighted 
by the Edison electric incandescent lamps. 
Easy access to them is afforded by the elevators 
with which the building is well supplied. 

The number of volumes in the Library on the 
first of June, was 119,510, showing a net increase 
during the preceding year of 7,889 volumes. The 



number received and entered in the accession 
catalogue was 10,599. Some of these were to re- 
place volumes which had been worn out, and 
which had been reported as missing in previous 
years, and hence did not increase the total num- 
ber. Of volumes reoeived, 8,245 volumes have 
been bought, and 2,345 volumes have been given. 
The amount expended for books was $9,405.38. 
The number of books not acoownted for was 202. 
The number of registered book-borrowers was 
27,142, an increase of 5 per cent. The number of 
books taken out for home use was 608,708, an in- 
crease of 17 p j r cent. The daily average circula- 
tion for home use was 2,040 volumes. Of the 
general character of these books, 8.78 per cent, 
were history and biography; 4.25 per cent, were 
voyages and travels; 6.62 per cent, were science 
and art; 4.03 per cent, were poetry and drama; 
60.22 per cent, were prose, fiction and juvenile 
books in the English language; 12.05 percent, 
were books in the continental languages of Eu- 
rope; and 4.05 per cent, were in other classes of 
literature.

[1887. 



There are many other things I could present to 
you to show a marked contrast between the be- 
ginning and ending of the past eight years, but 
your patience would not endure it. But I will 
call your attention at least to one: That is, the 
neat and elegant system of street names on cor- 
ner lamps, in great contrast with the old tin 
collar which sat upon the top of the lamps, half 
of the time awry, oftentimes turned so as to give 
the wrong indication, if they gave any, being 
generally invisible at night and illegible by day. 

It has become ahxed habit of a sensational and 
partisan press to dilate upon the gambling in 
Chicago— upon the low dives and dens of crime, 
and to ascribe all these things to the adminis- 
tration. Preachers, generally good and pious 
men, whose calling cuts them off from learning 
true facts, and ready to believe all they read of a 
sinful world— some of them have pictured the 
Mayor as a man who had eaten of some new for- 
bidden fruit, and who should be whipped by 
Seraphim with naming sword from this, by him, 
polluted Eden. 

Among heaven's good gifts toman, none is 
more beneficient than that characteristic which 
enables him quickly to forget the pains and sor- 
rows of the past. If the memory of sufferings 
were lasting life would be a never-ceasing 
funeral. We naturally think the evils of to-day 
the worst and to be of the day's beggetting. We 
are prone to regard the festering sores and 
plague spots upon social life as of present, 
growth. To the government of this year is as- 
cribed all the evils of this year. 

Men are disposed to believe what they read and 
hear; nature speaks only the truth, and one of 
the hardest of man's lessons to learn, is that "h!1 
men are liars;" people read and hear that the 
present administration has poisoned Chicago; 
less than half of thera knew the city eight years 
ago; three-sevenths of our population were not 
here then; eight years is more than a third of a 
generation; one-sixth of all who were here have 
passed away forever; a third who are now grown 
up, were then unobserving children. Thus it 
can be truly said, that more than half of our 
people are ignorant of what the city was when I 
became Mayor, and readily believe that the 
plague spots in the city are of new orign. 

What are the facts? In 1873, there were in the 
city about forty regular gambling hells, and 
about thirty bunko places. Many saloons were 
the resort of thieves and marauders upon soci- 
ety; the then Mayor was not responsible for this 
state of things; Chicago was then being rebuilt, 
and the reckless rushed here from every direc- 
tion; but the people did then blame him, and 
what were called Law and Order Organizations 
demanded that an outraged Sabbath should be 
restored to purity; that the healthy atmosphere 
of a country village should rule in Chicago; an 
attempt was made to bring about a radical 
change. What was the result? The People's 
party won the election by an overwhelming ma- 
jority, and a free Sunday was the rule, Law and 
Order Organizations would not have sprung into 
existence had there not appeared a necessity for 
them. In 1878 there were twenty odd regular gam- 
bling hells, and a part of police force levied fixed 
blackmail upon them for the regular payment of 
which immunity was granted. The back rooms 
of many saloons were the rendezvous of thieves 
and burglars; bunko steerers and confidence men 
abounded; reform was demanded; the then 
Mayor was not responsible for these things; he 
tried to give a good government, but the times 
were demoralized; the whole tone of the North 
had been changed by the civil war; corruption 
among army contractors, among cotton specu- 
lators, even in the sanitary department of the 
army, had poisoned the popular heart; the gen- 
eral demoralization which history shows to be an 
inevitable attendant of civil war, had under- 
minded the old purity of business relations; 
men were unwilling to accumulate moderate 



fortunes by the slow and steady practices of 
honest dealing. 

I fear this demoralization has taken root so 
deeply that America will never return to the old- 
en ideas. Men are fearfully ambitious of ac- 
quiring sudden riches. They desire to be rich 
in their youth, so that they may revel in the 
springtime of life. Plutocracy has erected it- 
self into a species of nobility, far worse than the 
privileged classes of monarchies, for it is not re- 
strained by the legend, "noblesse oblige." This 
plutocracy reaches every sphere in life. Some 
of the churches even are charged with being 
tainted with it, Men grow rich in legislative 
halls, and great corporations have paid members 
in every state legislature. The United States 
Senate is no longer a body of learned conscript 
fathers, but is an assemblage of nouveaux riches 
who it is said purchase their senatorial togas as 
freely as they would buy a membership in a 
stock or grain exchange. 

Men who were poor last year, are mill- 
ionaires to-day, and the masses, carried 
away by the contagion, want, too, to grow rich 
in a day. They forget that this rapidly acquired 
wealth was not made— not created, but was sim- 
ply taken from the pockets of thousands who 
sank back into poverty; that these splendid for- 
tunes are the gathering from the flotsam and 
jetsam of innumerable wrecks. Our stock and 
trade boards sell often in a week more of shares 
and grain than exists in the whole land during 
an entire year. Not able to go on the board of 
trade, many flock to the roulette and faro table, 
to get something for nothing.. They frequent 
the pool rooms and speculate on everything from 
a base-ball game up to the returns of a National 
election. They risk their dimes and quarters, 
hoping to get dollars with which to speculate on 
'change. 

Each pool room in gambler's alley does more 
to ruin the youth of the city than all its other 
gambelmg houses together, and ought to be 
stamped out by law. But the law has yet to be 
enacted. 

To-day there are fewer gambling houses in 
Chicago than existed eight years ago. There is 
not a single bunko establishment and not a con- 
fidence trick has been taken in several years. 

Although our population has so vastly grown 
and there are nearly a thousand saloons more 
than were here in 1878, yet there are far fewer 
low dives. Shortly after I came into office the 
demand was made upon me to clean out low 
dives and the places pointed out numbered 
among the dozens. Last January the Citizen's 
League only brought to my notice three or four. 
I examined into the facts, and revoked the licen- 
ces of these and refused licenses to others. And 
the worst is to-day open in full blast, because a 
Court of Equity enjoined the Mayor and Chief of 
Police from interfering with the place. No howl 
has gone up from the press against the judge. 

Unthinking people think men can be made 
good directly by law. Men's morals are not im- 
mediately changed by government. Government 
can secure to them stability in contracts; can 
protect them in their business; can watch over 
them while they work, and then care for and 
guard them and iheir property while they sleep. 
Being thus protected, they make their own mor- 
als. The peaceful fireside, amidst good and well 
clad women; among prattling, innocent child- 
ren: the well- ventilated and well conducted 
school-room; the pulpit where good men preside 
and reverently in homely ph'ase teach the ways 
of God to man and man's duty to God and to 
man— these are the things which foster men's 
morals, and that is the best government which 
protects men in learning their lessons in safety. 
This is the government I have endeavored to 
give to Chicago. They who think that the mor- 
als of a great crowded city can be made pure by 
law, are as much dreamers as the mad Anarchists 
who imagine that crime can be destroyed by

killing law. I have been charged with fostering 
low saloons. Men think a mayor has absolute 
discretion and the power to give or withhold li- 
censes at his own will. The Mayor's discretion 
is an official one. Every man has a right to earn 
his living in his chosen legitimate way. The 
Mayor must withhold his license only on the 
most assured grounds. He has sought reliable 
information from his sworn police. The statis- 
tics published by the Citizen's League show that 
in all of the vices which it was organized to re- 
press in connection with low saloons, there has 
been within the past few years great improve- 
The League claims the credit for this. I would 
not rob them of one single laurel. But I demand 
that I be not charged with an increased vice 
when they show that such vice is not increased. 

For several years past the partisan press of 
Chicago has held it up before the eyes of the 
world as if it were unfit for honorable men to 
live in — where life was unsafe — where crime 
stalked about in broad day-light, and the gar- 
roter and sandbagger were watching at night 
to strike down the unwary, and the Mayor was the 
ca»se of all this terrible social sinfulness. To 
destroy the Mayor, whose crime was that he held 
a great party composed of men of various and 
somewhat antagonistic nationalities, in solid 
phalanx— to destroy him. this beautif il city was 
made a hissing by-word for crirae and debau- 
chery. The Mayor was a man who might be 
killed, but who struck back when receiving the 
fatal blow. He struck those who attacked him. 
and with an esprit du corps which makes a 
newspaper fight any one who hits one of their 
class, other newspapers, who ought to have tried 
to see fair play, made it a sort of fraternal duty 
to turn upon the m iu w!io had the courage to 
fight his own battles. He defended himself, and 
thereby made s himself the target for a Nation's 
press. They quoted from our own papers to 
to prove that Chicago was a modern Sodom and 
Gomorrah, and all because of its Mayor. This 
Mayor has been pictured as the boon companion 
of gamblers, the habitue of low haunts and of 
places of vile resort, and the debaucher of 
public morals, and all of this by newspapers 
whose columns have teemed with every nastiness 
which eoald make them attractive to a depraved 
taste. The editors defend themselves by saying 
they would not publish such things if readers 
d d not desire it. The saloon-keeper who fills 
the inebriate has the same excuse. In both eases 
vice is fed upon the aliment furnished, and that 
aliment is given out for gold. Faust sells him- 
self to the devil (on the stage) for twenty-five 
years of power to revel in earthly bliss. Mephis- 
tophles must be amused when he surveys the 
the audience, so many of whom are daily Selling 
themselves for filthy lucre; there, in the pro- 
scenium boxes and in the foyer, are deadhead 
editors who daily poison the minds of youth, by 
retailing columns of sin at a niGkel for a sheet 
of sixteen pages. 

To-morrow the papers will say: "Harrison made 
his usual flings at the papers." A brave man 
likes one who returns lusty blows; it is only the 
craven who stabs and hates the man who dares 
strike back; it is the assassin who stealthily poi- 
sons either the body or character of a man. know- 
ing that a man can not defend himself. 

My crime had been that I gave Chicago a good 
government, and thereby won the support, not 
oniy of my own party, but of thousands of the best 
element of the opposing party. My flings at the 
press have been only to defend the fair fame of 
Chicago. The other day the press said the elec- 
tion of a certain candidate for Mayor would ruin 
Chicago, and then sounded the alarm that he 
was likely to be elected — that is, that a majority 
of our voters would support him. Ever ready to 
defend my city, I said that Chicago could not be 
destroyed, it mattered not who was elected; that 
the majority of our voters did not wish to des- 
troy this, the city of their adoptiun. I wished 



[ the world to know that I, who pay large taxes, 
had no fear of such result; that those abroad need 
not fear to come to Chicago, it mattered not who 
should be Mayor, and for this reason I was 
charged with conspiracy with the party of Mr. 
Nelson to elect him. And that too, when I had 
not seen one of his party for weeks, and never 
SGhemed with any of them for election purposes, 
and never made any bargain or contract with one 

| of them for any political ends. 

The Chicago Alderman receives only a small 
per diem for regular meetings, not more than 
enough to liquidate his legitimate election ex- 
penses. He has hib bread to win and cannot give 

\ much of his time and thought to the city's af- 
fairs. It is no disparagement to his zeal or brain 

; to say that he cannot bring to the public business 
the same care and intelligence which is due from 

! a well-paid Mayor, who has at his command a 

I corps of able assistants. It is no reflection, 
therefore, upon past Councils to remind you that 
the M.ayor has felt it his duty to interpose his 
veto many times to check inconsiderate and 
hasty legislation. In most of such cases he has 
been sustained by a majority vote and not infre- 
quently unanimously. Sometimes, however, the 

I opinion of the Council has been fixed and de- 
termined and vetoes have been over-ridden, 
whether for the pubJiG good or detriment, it is 
needless now to a-k. 

You, I hope, will not deem it indelicate in me 
to refer to some differences between the Council 
and the Mayor, wherein he carried his point and 
thereby did the city good service. 

The Council leased the Rookery lot at $30,000 
per annum, the building to be erected to cost 
$500,000 and to be the property of the lessee. 
The Mayor disapproved the measure and negoti- 
ated a lease at an increased rent, the building to 
become the city's property. The structure now 
being completed costs nsarly .$1,500,000 and is of 
such massive strength that it will last for ages, 
If the location continues, as it most probably 
will, a great business center, the structure will 
be worth at the end of the term at least $1,000,- 
000, The taxation on the building will be an- 
nually from $5,003 to $8,000 more than would 
have accrued from the structure under the 
Council lease. The city gains in that one matter 
the following: 



The value of structure at 

end of term $1,000,000 

Aggregated increased an- 
nual rent 495.000 

Aggregated minimum in- 
creased taxation 495.000 

Simple interest on the in- 
crease at 4 per cent. 

about 2,000,000 

Total $3,990,000 



The leasing of the old Armory lot under the 
Mayor's action will during the term benefit the 
city nearly a million. 

The Mayor's action in the tunnel ordinance 
and in the Dearborn street ordinance secured to 
the city nearly a half million of money. In the 
LaSalle ar.d Great Western Kailwiy ordinance, 
and in the matter of viaducts and bridges with 
other steam and street railways, he saved the 
city several hundred thousand dollars. In short 
by reason of his giving care and thought to mat- 
ters which the Council could not be uxoected to 
give, he has saved to the Gity directly in money 
many millions of dollars. But indirectly by 
checking hasty legislation he has saved the peo- 
ple a great deal more. But. what few Aldermf n 
have known, and what the public has not dream- 
ed of. many schemes have been ni oped in the 
bud by his declaration that they could be passed 
only by twenty-four votes, that is. over his veto. 

The West Division Conducors' and Drivers' 
strike was put down without bloodshed and a

satisfactory compromise was reached. The good 
name and dignity of the city were preserved, 
although several millions of animated gold plead 
with the Mayor to call upon the Sheriff with his 
armed posse. After the terrible crime committed 
at the Haymarket the representatives of fifty 
millions - if money urged the Mayor to call out 
the Militia. He told timid millionaires that he 
would preserve the peace ; and with the aid of 
the blue coated boys he did 6o, and Chicago's fair 
name brightened in the eyes of the world, and 
the Chicago Police were enrolled as heroes. 
When the dangerous strikes were going on at the 
Stock Yards and a hired, untrained detective 
police shot men down like dogs, no striker show- 
ed his face north of thirty-ninth street, for it was 
known that within the city limits, law and order 
wou'd be preserved. 

During eight long years, although heaven and 
earth has been appealed to to injure this admin- 
istration, no suspicion of dishonesty has attach- 
ed to it. Employing during this time many hun- 
dreds of men. there nas been, save in the case of 
three employes of police courts, no money scan- 
dal. Some self-seeking men. measuring others 
by themselves, have said the Mayor has through 
his official position made money. I would not 
deem the he worth noticing but for the fact that 
so many people credit what they see in print. 
The fact is, I have guarded myself against this 
as I would have done from deadly contagion. I 
have watched over the city's interest as scrupul- 
ously as I would have done had it been my priv- 
ate property. Being the city's servant, I have 
given it my whole time, even to the almost entire 
neglect of my own affairs. 

I found the city eight years ago bankrupt and 
dishonored. It, novv has as good credit as any in 
this broad land. It has grown marvelously. 
Values have been greatly enhanced, and yet taxes 
have barely perceptibly increased, and when col- 
lected have been prudently, economically and 
honestly expended. I found the city in the mud. 
with wretched streets, rotten bridges and rusted 
viaducts. It now has hundreds of miles of well 
paved streets, viaducts and bridges as solid as 
the streets themselves, and miles of business 
houses and residences of palatial splendor. 

I iound Chicago an overgrown village; it is now 
a grand cosmopolitan city. 

And yet I have been calumniated and vilified 
as if I were an outlaw, unfit for association with 
respectable people. Conscious of well-doing. I 
thought myself callous to the shafts of calumny 
and partisan malice, but my medical advisor and 
tried friend Dr. DeWolf, often warned me that I 
must rest; that this constant abuse and false at- 
tack, the unremitting wory and care, was telling 
upon me more than I was aware. It is hard for a 
strong man to realize that he has an unseen vul- 
nerable spot. At last I saw it. The long years 
of continuous strain which I had considered only 
healthy mental exercise; the constant poison of 
relentless abuse and calumny which I have treat- 
ed as medicine to a brave man; the forgetfulness 
of some whom I had never torgotten, or failed to 
aid to the best of my ability; these culminated, 
and I resolved to stop at once. 

I have worked faithfully for this city. I would 
gladly have done more. Chicago was my pride- 
its grandeur way my glory. But I have for a 
long time thought it would be better for the city 
that its Mayor should be in political sympathy 
with its press, even though he might not do so 
well as one of antagonistic party affiliations. It 
is for the people's good not only that they be 
well governed, but that they think so. The 
thinking it tends to make them happy. It was 
a part of partisanship to make them think their 
affairs badly managed, and thereby to make 
them unhappy. With a fair-minded Republican 
Mayor, all will go swimmingly. There is no 
Democratic paper m the cily. and the Republi- 
can press will shut its eyes to his little mistakes. 
The occupation of the papers will be gone; they 



will caper nimbly in the Mayor's office to the 
seductive pleasure of patronage. The people will 
soon learn that Chicago is redeemed. The winter 
of discontent will be made glorious summer. 
The clouds which lowered over State 6treet will 
be dispelled; its dives will be turned to missions. 
The world will be told that Chicago is not only 
a summer resort, but that young ladies can take 
moonlight strolls all alone at midnight on any 
of its streets. Board of trade men will buy for 
grangers millions of bushels of grain with a 
guarantee of profit. Mapleson will bring the 
Diva for one more farewell trip without guarantee 
against loss. For the 30,000 lewd women of one 
of my admiring preaehers will become chaste 
opera-goers, and will, while watching aerial bal- 
lot dancers clothed in transparent gauzy nothing, 
hum from " Moses in Egypt " to Arcadian dudes 
who write glibly at a penny a line. 

These things could not be under a man of my 
party, and certainly not under me. A Republi- 
can Alderman addressing an audienee during the 
late campaign, put this pertinent question— he 
said: "Mayor Harrison has vetoed many ordin- 
ances. The papers applauded him. He has sent 
in many messages making many suggestions. 
They were praised by the press without stint. 
His every public act has been approved, if not 
applauded; and yet, whenever he has been a can- 
didate, he has been abused as few men were ever 
abused, and the people are told he should be de- 
feated for the city's good. Why is this?" 

He afterwards asked 'me to solve the conund- 
rum. I will leave it to a fair-minded and just 
public to give the answer after the acrimony of 
party strife shall have passed away. I have no 
fear but that it will be answered satisfacto iiy to 
myself or to my children. 

Gentlemen, it has been my good fortune to 
have honest and capable men to assist me in ad- 
ministering the affairs of the eity. All of the 
heads of departments and of sub-departments 
have given singular satisfaction. The press has 
acknowledged this, forgetting that an executive 
officer should be judged almost exclusively by 
the acts and character of those who do his will. 
He can do but little directly. If his appointees 
do well, then has he done well. In eight years I 
have had a large number of heads of depart- 
ments and sub-departments. No scandal has 
ever arisen. Their duties have been well per- 
formed and several have acquired national repu- 
tion in their respective spheres. All of this the 
press has acknowledged. 

It may not seem proper for me to make any 
recommendations now that I am going out, but 
I will suggest two. Over a year ago I recom- 
mended to the presidents of the several street 
railroad companies the necessity for loops in the 
heart of the city. They at once recognized the 
necessity for the thing, and have done a good 
deal to bring it about. The Council should do 
every thing in its power to stimulate the matter. 
In the late ordinances of the North Chicago Com- 
pany, I aided in this line to such an extent that 
unthinking people thought me over-interested 
in that company. You should forget the interest 
of any one or more companies, and do your best 
to force all of them into a comprehensive system 
in this direction. If it be not done, there will 
ere long, be an embargo in free locomotion in the 
South Division, north of Harrison street. 

My other suggestion is of a pecular character. 
While our Eire Department is one of the most 
effective in the world and will be able to prevent 
any great conflagration, and to reduce losses to a 
minimum in American cities yet all must ac- 
knowledge we have to many fires. We have more 
and lose more than Paris with its nearly three 
million people. This is partly owing to its 
manner of building houses, but not entirely to 
that. We have in the Fre Marshal a man of 
extraordinary ability. I have seen him not only 
here but on his travels. Every trip he makes 
east has benefited our department. I believe if

you should send him abroad on full pay, tax- 
paying citizens will rise a purse for his expenses. 
I believe it will do more for the city than any- 
thing else I can think of. Mr. Swenie is not 
only a fireman, but an expert in the true manner 
of building for fire protection. He wiil bring 
back a fund of practical information worth a 
great deal to us, I never mentioned this to him 
and when he hears of this suggestion he will be 
utterly surprised. He should stay in London, 
Paris and Berlin each one or two months. His 
Assistant Marshal is fully capable of managing 
the department during his absence. 

Gentlemen, I have now, in parting with you, to 
thank you for very many acts of kindness and 
courtesy. No partisanship has ever caused as 
any bitterness. For over fifteen years I have 
been in continuous active service of the people. 
I have tried to serve the aa well. As Mayor and 
presiding officer I have endeavored ever to be 
fair to you during eight years. Earnestly hop- 
ing that your every act will be for the good of 
the public, and that my successor may give our 
people a pure, honest and efficient govern- 
ment, I bid you a final good bye. 

Carter H. Harrison, 

His Honor, Mayor Harrison, directed the 
Clerk to call the roll on the approval of the 
bond of Mayor-elect Roche, and the bond was 
approved by yeas and nays as follows:

His Honor, Mayor Roche, took the Chair and 
addressed the Council as follows: 
Gentlemen of the City Council : 

You are the ehosen guardians of, and legislat- 
ors for a city of 800,000 people, whose material 
and moral well being, and prosperity are, in 
large measure, committed to your care. How 
immense is your responsibility: How command- 
ing the call for the right, exercise of your high- 
est faculties: And how great the reward for the 
faithful discharge of your duties: 

To-day, Chicago is the chief distributing point 
of the North-West; the greatest railway center on 
this Continent— a living tide of ever three hun- 
dred thousand souls rushing through her railway 
arteries daily, while the books of the Collector of 
Customs show a greater number of arrivals and 
departures of vessels from our harbor during 
the season of navigation, than from the port of 
New York. 

Chicago is peopled by diverse nationalties, 
with different, original modes of training and 
habits of thought and life, attracted here by the 
larger opportunities afforded for providing 
homes for themselves and their children and for 
laying the foundations of a prosperous future. 
The atmosphere of Freedom changes an exotic 
feature here, obliterates or smooths down a for- 
eign wrinkle there, and contact and association 
assimilate their habits to those who are " to the 
manner born," till, in the powerful alembic of 
free institutions, race distinctions, prejudices 
and hates dissolve and disappear, and the plastic 
hand of Liberty moulds all nationalities into the 
perfect likeness of American citizenship— the 
grandest type of manhood the world has ever 
seen. Thus without violent change, or sudden 
shock to race or religious opinions, the equal 
rights of all citizens of whatever birth or ereed 
being preserved intact, the old civilization gives 
place to the new, combining the patient industry, 
frugal habits and sturdy grip of the Old World 
with the quick perceptions, and elastic and ex- 
pansive enterprise of the New, and forming a 
cosmopolitan city, whose genius is creative, not 



destructive. Her inspiration is to build up, 
not to tear down ; and they most truly represent 
and honor her character who do most to "length- 
en her cords and strengthen her stakes," 
and help to make Chicago the most economi- 
cal, the most comfortable, and the most desir- 
able dwelling place on this continent. 

This city owes her pre-eminence to productive 
labor, which is simply ingenuity, skill and in- 
dustry employed, in rural districts, chiefly in 
agriculture, and occupied, in cities and manu- 
facturing towns, mainly in shaping raw material 
into useful forms. Every brick, and stone, and 
timber in the buildings which line our six hun- 
dred and fifty miles of streets, is a contribution 
to the grandest monument of labor, erected by 
willing hands and earnest hearts, in modern 
times. 

The demand of the workingmen for just treat- 
ment and fair wages is right and should be re- 
spected. Arbitration is a better method of set- 
tling controversies between employee and em- 
ployer than strikes or boycotts or brute force. 
Might is not the synonym of Right, and should 
not take its place in a land of liberty, find Law, 
and a free ballot. And the mistaken men who. 
while enjoying the benefits of a free government 
are seeking to undermine and overthrow it un- 
der the guise of socialism or anarchy, must learn 
that this is not the soil for the growth of their 
un-American doctrines. 

The first duty of government is the protection 
of its citizens in their right to life, liberty and 
property. We have for this purpose several de- 
partments, prominent among which are Depart- 
ments of Police, Fire, Health and Public Works. 
It shall be my aim to make all of them serve as 
efficiently as possible the purposes for which 
they were organized, and one of my earliest du- 
ties will be a thorough examination of the work- 
ing of every department and the personnel ot its 
members. All competent and faithful officials 
will welcome such investigation in thoir own 
interests as well as in the interest of public ser- 
vice. 

Called to the office of chief magistrate of this 
city by the great majority of its citizens because 
they believed I would be sincerely devoted to 
the public welfare, and that I would maintain 
order, discourage vice, and protect the equal 
rierhts of all. It shall be my earnest endeavor to 
fulfill their just expectations. There is but one 
proper, safe and equitable rule for the executive 
officer of this city. The law must be supreme. 
The will of the people, legally expressed, must 
be executed. 

One of the most important branches of the 
city government is the Board of Education, 
whose chief care should be to secure the largest 
attendance and the most efficient instruction in 
our common schools. The percentage of non- 
attendance of children of school age is lament- 
ably large, while but a small per cent, of them 
ever attend high school. The high schools are 
invaluable, but can never rank in importance to 
the mass of our people with the common schools. 
The ereneral course of study pursued in th°"*J 
schools, supplemented by a system of mai i 
training, by which the eye and the hand co-oi . r- 
ate with the mind in the work of education, and 
which I hope to see more extensively introduced 
into the higher grades of our school system, will 
qualify any pupil for the ordinary avocations of 
life and fit him to become a useful and respected 
citizen. 

The Health Department, so intimately c< 
nected with the subject of drainage and 
abundant supply of pure water, shall be n y 
special care. The drainage question is now in 
the hands of a commission appointor , by the 
City Council, and the proper course to be taken 
will depend largely upon the action of the Legis- 
lature, before which several bills on this sub- 
ject are now pending. I will vigorously support 
any just and liberal measure that will accomplish 



April 18 ] 



the objects sought, and. at the same time, pro- 
mote the sanitary and commercial interests of 
the people of the cities and towns along the line 
of the proposed outlet. This drainage question, 
howevpr, is of such present vital importance to 
the health and lives of more than a million peo- 
plo, that some acceptable plan should be for- 
mulated by which the work can be begun at an 
early period. If no feasible plan be provided by 
the Legislature, or the Commission, it will be- 
come the duty of this Council and the Mayor to 
deyise some means by which the health of the 
city can be protected. A public debt is not a 
public bletsing but an obligation binding the 
debtor to the creditor, and the only relief is in 
satisfactory payment. Repudiation or indefinite 
deferment only adds disgrace and shame to the 
burden. Bonding a debt transfers a portion of 
the burden to those who will hereafter enjoy a 
part— it may be a large part— of the benefits 
for which the debt was contracted, and may be 
justified, in exceptional cases, on that ground. 
But the safe general rule for municipalities and 
for Chicago, is to "pay as you go." Though op- 
posed to an increase of our bonded indebtedness 
for ordinary purposes, I should favor special 
assessments for the issue of bonds, or both, if 
necessary, for the prosecution of a work so es- 
sential to the health and happiness of our people 
as the providing of a suitable drainage system 
and water supply. 

The affairs of our eity should be conducted on 
the same principles which govern any large en- 
terprising, prudent and successful business or- 
ganization. There must be competent, honest, 
and faithful heads of departments and employes 
and responsibility and accountability to central 
authority in any well-conducted enterprise. Any 
rules which apply to large, well-managed busi- 
ness organizations should guide the administra- 
tion of our city affairs.

Gentlemen: Section 1250, of the Municipal

The following is the message: 

Mayor's Office, ) 
Chicago, June 3, 1887. ) 

To the City Council: 

Gentlemen: Yon are fully aware of the ex- 
istence of the "bridge nuisance," and I need not 
take time to show that it should be abated, if it 
can be done without serious injury to the vessel 
interest. At every seaboard city vessels are 
obliged to wait for the tide in order to get in or 
out of the harbor. The hours of arrival and de- 
parture are fixed by a natural law, and no one 
complains. Here vessels are accustomed to come 
in and go out at all hours of the day, to the great 
inconvenience of the public. With the river 
lighted by electricity and the bridges opened for 
hours at night, it seems to me the arrival and de- 
parture of vessels can be controlled so as to ob- 



viate in great measure complaints of interrup- 
tion of travel. I therefore suggest that the 
bridges on the river, on the south branch to 
Twelfth street and on the north branch to Chi- 
cago aveaue, be opened from 12 o'clock midnight 
until (5 a. m. during the season of navigation, the 
bridges at ('lark, Madison, Adams, and Twelfth 
streets to be closed at intervals of an hour for 
three or five minutes, if necessary, for the cross- 
ing of street cars, vehicles and pedestrians. The 
bridge-tenders should have limited authority to 
open the bridges during the day in October and 
November, or whenever storms occur, for the 
passage in of vessels, and provision should also 
be made for the opening at other times when a 
vessel is in distress. 

An arrangement can easily be made by which 
the various bridges may be connected with 
the fire-alarm office, so that in the event of a fire 
the men in charge can be notified in timetoclo6e 
them for the passage of the fire apparatus. 

I submit herewith an estimate of the cost of an 
electric-light plant of ample capacity, for which, 
it will be 6een, that if the city owns its plant, the 
necessary lighting can be done for 43 per. cent 
less than is charged for all night lighting in any 
other city in the country. 

The Corporation Counsel advises me that the 
City Council has the power to order the opening 
of the bridges, and also that a portion of the ap- 
propriation for gas can be used for the electric 
lights. 

As there is no legal objection in the way, and 
the change will be of great benefit to tne people. 
I earnestly recommend that this communication 
be referred to a committee with instructions to 
consider the matter, and report an ordinance if 
the opening of the bridges as proposed be practic- 
able. 

John A. Koche, 

Mayor. 

The following is the estimate: 

Chicago, III., May 30, 1887. 
To His Honor, John A. Roche, Mayor of the City 
of Chicago: 

Sir:— 1 have the honor to submit the following 
estimate for an electric lighting plant, complete 
for lighting all the bridges and viaducts of the 
river, from Twelfth street in the south, to Chi- 
cago avenue in the north, and to the mouth of the 
river. 

For this purpose I would recommend the use 
of 100 double-carbon arc lamps, to be operated 
by four thirty-light dynamos, with engine and 
boiler capacity of 125 horse power. 
The cost of such a plant I estimate as follows: 
Four thirty-light dynamos with 103 double 



carbon lamps $9,350.00 

Engine and boiler, with pumps, 
heater, steam connection and founda- 
tion S4.000.00 



$13,350.00. 

Ten miles of No. 5 cable, armored, 
dropped into the river from the line 
of docks on both 6ides, with loops 
running to bridge approaches on 
both sides of the river, the eable 
coming up on each side of the ap- 
proaches to be protected in iron 
pipes. The cost of this cable, laid 
ready for attachment to dynamos, 
including labor, estimating on a 
total of ten miles, would be $26,400.00 

New bailding, 25x45, one story and 
half, to be located on present site 
of pumping house at foot of Wash- 
ington street, which would give 
ample accommodation to electric 
light plant and pumping service of 
tunnel, estimated cost of same with 
smokestack $8,000.00 

Total. - r .. Tr . T _ - $47,750.00 



June 3,] 



[1887. 



This would include the hanging of the lamps 
and the necessary work, including belting, for 
say $47,750.00 

The cost to operate the plant I estimate, on a 



conservative basis, as follows: 
Taking an average run of ten hours 
per night, for every night in the year 
the carbons at present prices, would 

cost ,.' $1,500.00 

Engineer already placed 

Kiremen _" 600.00 

Two carbon men, at $600 each 1,200.00 

Coal 3,000.00 

Oil, waste, breakage of globes and in- 
cidentals 1,000.00 



Total $ 7,300.00 



In running one hundred lights, this would 
make the net cost $73 per lamp per year, running 
every night; adding 6 per. cent on cost of plant, 
would make total cost of $101.65 per lamp per 
year. 

The prices given above are based on everything 
being nrst-class in every respect. The engine 
plant would be a Buckeye, a Williams, a Parker- 
Russell, an Ide, a New York Safety, or other en- 
gine of this type, the cost of which would not 
vary much. 

In order that you may see the cost of lighting 
where you own your own plant, in comparison 
with other large cities where they rent their 
lights, I submit the following prices for all-night 
lights, paid by some, viz: 

New York City pays $225.50 per year for all- 
night lights. 

Brooklyn, N. Y., $219.00. 

Toledo, O., $254.00 for all-night bridge lights. 

Boston, Mass. , for all-night lights pays in excess 
of what is paid in New York, but the exact figure 
I am not able to give you. 

Savannah, Ga., $200.00 per. year for all-night 
lights running 300 lights per. year only. 

In some of the larger cities where they light by 
moon schedules, making an average of 2,200 hours 
per. year, the following prices are paid: 

Toledo, O., $165.00 per. year. 

Peoria, 111., $145.00 per. year. 

Cleveland. O., $112.50 per. year. 

Detroit, Mich., $123.00 per. year. 

Erie, Pa., $126.00 per. year. 

Phila., Pa., $185.00 per. year. 

In some of the smaller cities they light by moon 
schedules until midnight only, and at the follow- 
ing rates: 

Alliance, O., $120.00 per. year until midnight. 
Sandusky, O.. $90 00 per. year Until midnight. 
Mansfield, O., $90.00 per. year until midnight. 
Fostoria, O., $90.00 per. year until midnight. 
Wellsville, O., $90.00 per. year until midnight. 
East Liverpool, O., $90.00 per. year until mid- 
night. 

Kankakee, 111., $80.00 per. year until midnight. 

From the list here given, you Gan judge of the 
rates paid, and by running your own city plant 
at a cost of $101,65 per. lamp per. year for 100 
lights, the city would be paying forty-three per. 
cent less for their all-night lighting than any city 
in the country. 

The plant as proposed above, would displace, 
on a very low estimate 400 gas lamps at $20.80 per. 
lamp per. year. The total cost of maintaining 
the same per. year is $8,320. as against $10,165. for 
the proposed electric light plant; the latter 
amount includes six per. cent interest on total 
cost of plant. 

If in the future it was deeided to extend the 
lighting to the business centers of the city, a lar- 
ger plant could be run at a proportionately less 
cost per lamp per annum, as the additional help 
would not be in proportion to that nec- 
essary to run one plant of 100 lights only. 

Respectfully submitted. 

J, P. Babbett, 

Superintendent.

Law Department. ? 
Chicago, June 24, 1887. ) 

Thos. C. Clarke Esq., Chairman Committee on 
Fire and Water. 

Dear Sir:— In reply to your inquiry, in my 
opinion the whole question is disposed of by the 
opinion of Judge Horton, that the permit is in- 
valid. 

In regard to the question as to the number of 
feet represented, we fiud upon a re-examihation 
of the petition that the figures formerly given 
are correct upon the face of the petition. 

As to the question of certain pieces of property 
being represented on both petitions, and as to 
the alleged right of certain persons to sign said 
petition, these are mere questions of fact and it 
is unneccessary to make inquiry into the facts 
if the permit is invalid. 

Yours Respectfully, 

J. W. Green, 
Corporation Counsel.

Aid. Dixon moved as an amendment to the

three divisions of the city. 

The motion prevailed. 

The following is the message: 

Mayor's Office, ? 
Chicago. July 6, 1887. J» 

To the City Council: 

Gentlemen: The extension of street railways 
in the city within the last two years has been so 
great that the business section north of Twelfth 
street is literally covered with tracks. Every 
through north and south street except Market 
has railway tracks upon it, and this is also true 
of every east and west street except Polk, and on 
that the West Division Company claims a fran- 
chise under an old ordinance. Six months ago 
four companies were operating the street rail- 
ways. One company has been purchased by an- 
other, and now there are really only three. In 
view of the consolidation of the gas companies 
it is not at all improbable that within a few years 
all the street railways may be controlled by a trust 
company. In the absence of legislation to pre- 
vent it a monopoly of the street-car travel of the 
city may be thus secured. Fortunately the Coun- 
cil is in a position to preclude this. A number 
of ordinances granting the right to lay cable 
tracks on streets in the busir ess district are 
pending before your body. Before passing them 
a provision should be inserted requiring the com- 
pany to which a franchise is given to permit any 
other company to use its tracks upon the pay- 
ment of so much per car or so much per mile, the 
basis to be fixed by arbitrators. Now is the time 
to act. If the pending ordinances are passed 
without such a provision as that suggested, there 
will be no other opportunity to obtain an inter- 
change of tracks. Owing to the rapid growth of 
the city more street car companies will be neces- 
sary in the near future, and in order to be con- 
ducted successfully it will be necessary for their 
cars to reach the center of the city. With all the 
streets there controlled under existing fran- 
chises, new companies will be excluded from 
that part of the city. 

I wish also to call the attention of the Council 
to another matter connected with street railways 
and corporations having underground privileges, 
It has been the experience of the Department of 
Public Works that however well intentioned 
corporations my be. and irrespective of the 
bonds given, it is impossible to tear up a street, 
restore the pavement, and put the roadway into 
its original condition. When a railway corpora- 
tion is authorized to occupy improved streets it 
should be upon condition that where tracks arp 
laid on such streets the roadway must be paved 
from curb to curb % intersections included, at the 
expense of the company using the streets. 

Respectfully submitted, 

John A. Roche, 
Mayor. 

ALSO, 

The following message: 

Mayor's Office, ) 
Chicago, July 6, 1887. J 

To the City Council: 

Gentlemen— I enclose a petition of property 
owners on LaSalle street, in reference to the lay- 



ing of a double track by the North Chicago 
Street Railway Company on that street, between 
Randolph and Jackson streets, and respectfully 
recommend that the time be extended in accord- 
ance with the prayer of the petitioners. 

The condition of the street is such that I re- 
commend immediate action and the passage of 
the accompanying ordinance, prepared by the 
Law Department, 

John A. Roche, 
Mayor. 

Aid. Dixon moved that the ordinance referred 
to in the message be passed. 

The motion prevailed by yeas and nays as fol- 
lows: 

Yeas— Whelan, Dixon, Mueller, Gile, Clarke, 
Wetherell, Hillock. Hildreth, Weber, Wheeler, 
Harris, Deal, Kerr, Badenoch, Campbell, White, 
McGregor, Ryan, Horn, Ernst, Burmeister, 
Carney, McCormiok, Tiederriann— 21. 

Nays— None. 

The following is the ordinance as passed: 
Whereas, the North Chicago Street Railroad 
Company acquired the right, by an ordinance 
passed J uly 19, 1886, to construct a street railroad 
on certain streets named in said ordinance, and 
said company has laid its double tracks on La- 
Salle street, from Washington street to Monroe 
street, and is about to continue, the same from 
Monroe street to Jackson street; and 

Whereas, the property owners on LaSalle 
street are anxious that only a single track shall 
be laid at present on LaSalle street, from Ran- 
dolph street to Monroe street, and that no track 
shall now be laid south of Monroe street, and 
said company is willing to temporarily remove 
one of its present tracks on LaSalle street, bet- 
ween Washington street and Monroe street, and 
also to postpone the laying of its tracks on La- 
Salle street south of Monroe street, upon condi- 
tion that said company shall have and possess all 
the rights as granted by said ordinance of July 
19, 1886; therefore 

Be it ordained by the City Council of the City 
of Chicago: 

Section 1. That the time for the completion 
of the tracks of the North Chicago Street Rail- 
road Company upon LaSalle street, as authorized 
by the ordinance of July 19, 1886, is hereby ex- 
tended until November 1, 1888; provided, that 
the second track laid by said company upon La- 
Salle street, between Washington street and 
Monroe street, 6hall be removed by said com- 
pany within ten (10) days from the taking effect 
of this ordinance; and provided also, that all the 
grants to said company, as specified in said 
ordinance of July 19, 1886, shall be and remain 
vested in said company, upon the conditions 
mentioned in such ordinance.

PETITIONS, COMMUNICATIONS AND 
ORDINANCES. 

Aid. Dixon presented a proposition of The 
Barber Asphalt Paving Company, of Washing- 



ton, D. C, for paving the streets of the city with 
asphalt. 

Aid. Kerr moved that it be published and re- 
ferred to the Joint Committee on Streets and 
Alleys of the three Divisions of the city. 

The motion prevailed. 

The following is the proposition: 

The Barber Asphalt Paving Co., ) 
Washington, D. C [ 
Chicago, July 5, 1887. ) 
To the Honorable the Mayor and City Council of 

the City of Chicago, in Council assembled : 

Gentlemen: We desire to call your attention 
to the comparative annual cost of granite, wood, 
and sheet asphalt pavements, and to present to 
your honorable body a proposition to lay the 
latter pavement in the City of Chicago. 

The average price paid during the past five 
years for the wooden pavements used in the city, 
including the necessary grading or filling has 
been at least one dollar and a quarter a square 
yard. The life of a wooden pavement under 
heavy traffic is not over three years, moderate 
traffic five years, and light traffic seven years. 
The average life of a wooden pavement is there- 
fore not over five years, and a portion of which 
time it is in a very bad condition. To keep a 
street paved with wood in good condition, for 
twenty-five years, and to deliver the pavement in 
good condition at the end of twenty-five years 
would therefore require the laying of at least six 
wooden pavements, which at one dollar and a 
quarter a square yard, including any necessary 
grading, would make the total cost for this period 
seven dollars and fifty cents. 

To keep a street paved with granite in good 
condition for the same length of time and deliver 
it in good condition at the end of twenty-five 
years would certainly require the laying of two 
granite pavements, which at a cost of $3.60 per 
square yard would make the total cost for this 
period at least $7.20 per square yard. 

We hereby propose to pave any of the streets or 
alleys of Chicago with a genuine Trinidad sheet 
asphalt pavement; said pavement to be kept in 
good condition at all times during and delivered 
in good condition at the end of twenty-five years. 
Said work, including any necessary filling or 
grading to be done in a thorough and workman- 
like manner, under the supervision of the 
Department of Public Works, complete for the 
sum of $5.00 per square yard, 55 per cent, of this 
amount to be paid us upon the completion and 
acceptance of the work, and one-twentieth of the 
balance at the end of each year after the first five 
years of the twenty-five years guarantee given. 

Should we be invited to fill this proposition we 
will secure our doing so by giving bonds or in 
any reasonable manner that will be satisfactory 
to your honorable body. 

It will be seen from the foregoing that the 
average annual cost of wooden pavements is at 
least thirty cents, and granite thirty-two cents 
per square yard per year, and that you have be- 
fore you a proposition to lay sheet asphalt upon 
any of the business or residence streets of this 
city at a cost, including the construction cost, of 
twenty cents per square yard per annum. 

The economy in the cost of sheet asphalt as 
compared with wood or granite, though strik- 
ing., is not any more so however, then the saving 
in the wear and tear of vehicles and the trans- 
porting of goods over it. A vehicle put to the 
same use in the City of Washington that it is in 
the City of Chicago will last fully three times as 
long there as here. One horse will haul a given 
number of tons a given distance in Washington 
that in Chicago would require at least four horsps 
to haul the same weight an equal distance within 
the same lenght of time, and at the end of a term 
of years the Washington horse would be in the 
better condition. Think of the economy there 
must be in the use of sheet asphalt as compared 
with granite or wood in these two items alone.

We have endeavored to confine ourselves to the 
merit of sheet asphalt pavements on the ground 
of their great economy, without taken up the 
matter of the sanitary advantages thay possess; 
the ease and cheapness with which they can be 
kept clean, or any of their other merits. 

Your honorable body doubtless appreciates 
that the most important question in the matter 
of the disturbance of pavements, on account of 
sewer, gas, water pipes, etc., is the one of relay- 
ing the pavement in as perfect condition at it 
was originally. We claim that no pavement in 
use. except sheet asphalt can be relaid so per- 
fectly that it will not show a hummock or de- 
pression. Sheet asphalt pavements that have 
been disturbed can be relaid 60 perfectly that it 
is difficult to tell where they were disturbed. 
Such repairs can be made easily, quickly, and at 
no greater expense than other pavements. 

We desire to state that we are laying this pave- 
ment in eighteen cities, in some of which cities, 
notably Boston, Omaha or Buffalo, the climate is 
quite as severe, and subject to as sudden and 
great changes as that of Chicago: that in these 
cities we have laid nearly one hundred and fifty 
miles of it and each succeeding year the quantity 
increases. We are also laying this pavement in 
European cities, and respectfully invite your 
honorable body to give its merits proper con- 
sideration by making a careful invastigation of 
them in any of the cities in which it has been 
laid. 

In conclusion permit us to state that the pave- 
ment referred to is radically different from any 
of the various coal tar and alleged to be asphalt 
poultices that have been laid in this city and 
unfortunately done so much with the assistance 
of contractors interested in competitive pave- 
ments, to give Chicago public an entirely er- 
roneous impression of the real merit of a pro- 
perly constructed genuine sheet asphalt pave- 
ment. 

What effect would it produce upon its national 
reputation if the streets of Chicago were paved 
as those of Washington are? 

Respectfully submitted, 
The Barber Asphalt Paving Company, 

F. Green, Vice President.

lished and made a speqial order for the next reg- 
ular meeting, at 8 o'clock p. m. 
The motion prevailed. 
The following is the majority report: 
To the Mayor and Aldermen of the City of Chi- 
cago in Council assembled: 
Your Committee on Fire and Water, to whom 
was referred the matter pertaining to a lake 
tunnel, having had the same under advisement, 
beg leave to report that the Committee recom- 
mend the building of an eight-foot tunnel, on a 
line as near as practicable due east from Twelfth 
street, extended four miles from shore into Lake 
Michigan, and that the following order be 
passed: 

Ordered, That the Commissioner of Public 
Works be and he is hereby directed to prepare 
plans and advertise for bids and award contract 
lor a tunnel, in accordance with the foregoing 
resolution, viz: On a line as near as practicable 
due east from Twelfth street, extended four 
miles intf> Lake Michigan. The necessary money 
for the construction of said tunnel to be taken 
from the Water Fund.

J. H. Ernst.

The following is the minority report: 
To the Mayor and Aldermen of the City of Chi- 
cago in Council assembled: 
A minority of your Committee on Fire and 
Water, to whom was referred the matter pertain- 
ing to constructing a lake tunnel, having had 
the same under advisement, beg leave to rep >rt 
as follows: 

It is assumed to be the desire of this Council 
n the location of the proposed new tunnel: first, 
that the water supply shall be of the purest 
quality attainable; second, that the quantity of 
water shall be sufficiently large to assure a full 
supply for the southern part of the city, for all 
time to come; third, to realize these ends with as 
small an outlay of money as may bi practicable. 

In considering the first proposition — viz: the 
quality of the water, it is necessary to look at the 
geographical situation of the city and the con- 
tour of the shore to the south. We have, first, 
the discharge from the Chicago river, which 
tends naturally to the south and east, next the 
breakwaters, and, as we all hope soon to see, an 
outer harbor; then, the government dumping- 
ground, which is about a mile east of the outer 
breakwater, or two miles east of Twelfth street; 
following the shore to the south, we have large 
sewers at Twelfth, Twenty-second, Thirty-fifth, 
and Thirty-ninth streets; then comes Hyde Park, 
South Chicago, and the Calumet river, the latter 
with a number of manufacturing establishments 
on its banks, and the number and importance of 
these interests increasing in a marked and rapid 
manner. Did Lake Michigan extend further to 
the southward than it does, these disturbing ele- 
ments would be of small consequence; but this is 
not the case. Chicago lays almost in the "bight" 
of the lake. With the wind blowing from north 
to east, matter in suspension, ice and the like, is 
carried toward the south shore, to be blown back 
again with the wind from south to west. Sup-

pose the "intake" of the new tunn el to be located 
at the end of a line extended from Twelfth street 
due east and four miles into the lake, land would 
then be shown due south eight miles. It seems 
to the minority of your Committee that a better 
location would be to build the tunnel on a line 
from Twelfth northeast six miles, which would 
locate the "intake" at a point four miles from 
shore and about two miles northeast of the pres- 
ent crib. At this point we would be to the north 
of all the disturbing elements mentioned hereto- 
fore and land would be shown due south twelve 
miles The depth of water in either case is near- 
ly the' same, about forty-two feet. It is urged, 
however, that the latter location requires two 
miles more of a tunnel, and. therefore, a larger 
outlay of money; that the location four miles 
east of Twelfth street would locate the intake 
of the tunnel beyond the influences of any dis- 
turbing elements and give us pure water. While 
this is true of to-day will it be equally true ten 
years from to-day? Is it not better to go toward 
the head of the lake, 360 miles away, than toward 
the foot of the lake eighteen miles away? And 
will not our water supply for all time to come 
be purer and better by building on a line north- 
east into deep water than in any other direction? 
Should we not aim to get the best possible water 
rather than that which is "pure enough. Your 
committee would also recommend a tunnel nine 
feet in diamater rather than eight feet, as should 
it be necessary at any time in the future to go still 
further into the lake, it can be done without 
suffering too great a loss from friction. Regard- 
ing the difference in cost between an eight foot 
tunnel four miles east from Twelfth street or a 
nine foot tunnel six miles northeast from the 
same point, which would be from $400,000 to 
$450,000, the minority of your committee think 
that in the end it will be found to be money 
well expended. m ,„ _
